FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. — It's beginning to feel more like winter. And light snow is expected to begin falling late Sunday in parts of Fairfield County — especially inland — which could cause slippery travel conditions for the morning commute, according to the National Weather Service.

Any snow over the interior will quickly change to rain later Monday morning as warm air moves in, the forecast said. All precipitation will end by early afternoon.
The highest snowfall amounts are expected along I-84, with an inch or slightly more expected from Danbury to Newtown to Waterbury, the weather service said.
There is a 50 percent chance of light snow overnight, with an 80 percent chance of rain and snow likely before 9 a.m., then a 30 percent chance of rain between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. The high temperature will be near 45 degrees, but with wind chills of 30 to 40.
